About Me


Do the undoable, but twice!


People who have met me briefly would probably remember me as a sarcastically humored crazy little sportsman.
People that know me a little bit have found out that I try to read the news everyday and love to discuss them. I enjoy controversy. People that know me better have probably started to love-hate me for many reasons, amongst them my determination, my lecturing and my hint of tidiness.
People that know me well have seen me cry.
Please feel free to inquire about the gaps.


Carpe Diem, you can sleep when you are old. Until then, let's enjoy the wonders of the world together while keeping them safe for generations to come!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


*** News in Dec 2017: After moving, my girlfriend and I are happy to host fellow couchsurfers again in the new year. ***


Way before knowing that such a great web-page exists, I have been couch-surfing for many years. After a High School exchange in the US, I made many wonderful friends all over the globe that I had to spend the last couple of years visiting them all :-) again and again!


I like sports, negotiation and humor, entrepreneurship and strategy. As soon as the Salsa music starts my feet begin to tickle, my whole body begins to wiggle and I HAVE TO DANCE! I LOVE IT!
If you join me for a jog or walk, you will know what was on my mind that day.
When my friends get out the cards, a smile forms on my face and I get hooked for quite a while, discussing the world and its politics, economics, and wonders while keeping my poker face. One more important thing:
I like to cook, but I love to eat.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

It must be something between crouching in a coal mine 800 m below the earth and jumping out of a perfectly well flying airplane all by myself...

Teach, Learn, Share

Anybody interested in managing entrepreneurship? I am trying to write scientific articles and practical reports about it.
